Two Exhibits About Amy Winehouse at the CJM Not to be Missed!

Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse As A Teen

Amy Winehouse is the subject of two art exhibitions opening at the Contemporary Jewish Museum of San Francisco.

The first, entitled “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait,” was shown first at the Jewish Museum London, will make its United States debut on July 29, 2015. It features Winehouse’s personal artifacts loaned from her family.

“This particular exhibition is truly a love letter to Winehouse from her family,” the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s Executive Director Lori Starr said in a press release.

A second exhibit, entitled “You Know I’m No Good,” will also open at the museum on the 29th. It features artworks inspired by Winehouse, created by Rachel Harrison, Jennie Ottinger and Jason Jägel.

“This is a snapshot of a girl who was to her deepest core simply a little Jewish kid from north London with a big talent,” Winehouse’s brother Alex says about the exhibits, which will be supplemented by a season of related programming, including discussions with figures such as rock critic Greil Marcus.

Both exhibitions run from July 29, 2015 to November 1, 2015 at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.
