GRAMMY MUSEUM® PRESENTS BEYOND BLACK — THE STYLE OF AMY WINEHOUSE



NEW EXHIBIT SHOWCASES ICONIC COSTUMES FROM WINEHOUSE’S PERSONAL ARCHIVE
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (DEC., 2019) — Six-time GRAMMY® winner Amy Winehouse has been widely renowned not just as a British music icon
and pop royalty, but as a trendsetting fashion influencer. To showcase
the late singer’s iconic outfits, as well as never-before-seen handwritten
lyrics, journal entries and other reflections from her family’s personal
archive, the GRAMMY Museum® proudly presents Beyond Black — The
Style Of Amy Winehouse, which will be the first-ever Winehouse exhibit
in the United States. The exhibit will open on Jan. 17, 2020 and will run
through April 13.
 
Beyond Black — The Style Of Amy Winehouse will offer a retrospective of Winehouse’s career, her biggest influences, her most iconic fashion
moments, and how she — while only living to be 27 and releasing two
studio albums — left an indelible mark on music, fashion and pop
culture. Winehouse’s unique musical style and fashion sense were a
reflection of her musical influences, including legacy artists Frank
Sinatra, Shangri-Las, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, and more, as
well as contemporaries in hip-hop and R&B, including Salt-N-Pepa, Nas,
Beastie Boys, Lauryn Hill, En Vogue, and more. The exhibit will also
touch on how Winehouse’s untimely passing led her family to create the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which works to inspire children and young people to build their self-esteem and resilience, so that they can flourish.
 
«Amy always credited my mother, her grandmother Cynthia, as a major
influence, both stylistically — as she taught her the importance of
grooming and having a look — and musically,» said Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse. «She liked to call me a ‘cab-driving Sinatra’ and her
mother’s side of the family were also musicians. Amy not only brought
her gift of music to the world, but also her fashion. We’re eager for
people to see her bold, beautiful spirit through all forms of her
creativity and look forward to honoring her legacy by displaying these
items at the GRAMMY Museum.»
 
«Amy had a rebellious rock and roll style and attitude, which she made
all her own with her signature beehive updo, winged eyeliner, tattoos,
and bold red lipstick,» said Winehouse’s stylist, Naomi Parry. «She had a
clear vision of who she was and what she wanted the world to see.
Working with Amy was one of my most satisfying and creative times in
my career. I’m excited for the world to finally see the looks we created
for what would have been her 2011 summer festival tour.»
 
This exhibit captures the spirt of Winehouse through some of her most
cherished and unique outfits and showcases her wit and charm by
displaying never-before-seen handwritten lyrics and prolific journal
entries.
 
«Amy Winehouse is undoubtedly one of the most gifted singers,
songwriters and performers of the early 21st century,» said the Museum’s President Michael Sticka. «Amy’s music and influence reached across
genres and generations. It’s an honor for the GRAMMY Museum to host
her very first exhibit in the United States and celebrate her talents,
creative process and musical legacy.»
