Michael Gudinski was there to officially launch Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait at the Jewish Museum of Australia in Melbourne. Gudinski reflected on meeting Winehouse and described her as a “super talent”. Back in 2007, Gudinski led a media tour to watch Winehouse perform at Coachella and together they were in talks of a very anticipated Australian debut.
Running from 22 October 2017 – 25 March 2018, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait is a personal and intimate exhibition which explores Amy Winehouse’s inner world, and the influences that shaped her career and personal life. Curated by the Jewish Museum London with Amy’s brother, Alex and her sister-in-law, Riva, the Winehouse family gave unprecedented access to Amy’s belongings, which focuses on Amy’s Jewish roots, family life, adolescence and her early career, including her guitar, family photos, record collection, and iconic outfits.
Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait has toured internationally with great success since its launch in London in 2013 and the Jewish Museum is the only place in Australia to host the exhibition and are excited to share this fantastic show with Amy Winehouse fans.
