A new Amy Winehouse exhibition will open at Proud in Camden, London later this year to mark what would have been the singer's 30th birthday.

Amy Winehouse: For You I Was a Flame is curated by the Amy Winehouse Foundation with the support of her family. It will be one of a series of events celebrating the singer and will feature Dean Chalkley's now infamous 2011 NME cover along with other shots by Andy Willsher. Works by graffiti artists Mr Brainwash and Bambi will be shown alongside the photos along with a Gerald Laing piece from Amy’s own collection. The exhibition will run from September 12 to October 6, 2013.

Her brother Alex said in a statement: "We're all very excited about the exhibition at Proud. Amy's fans were absolutely amazing in the wake of her passing, and showed their love and loss in the most fantastic ways. This, along with the photos and graffiti art, shows Amy at her glitzy best, and her most vulnerable, demonstrating the effect she had on her followers. We hope that everyone who comes feels the same way."

Last week (July 3) another Amy Winehouse exhibition opened at London's Jewish Museum. Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait brings together items from her childhood, her time at stage school and her career in music – including her first ever guitar and Grammy Award.
