MADE IN MEXICO The Rebozo in Art, Culture & Fashion | | Herstory | Scoop.it

This summer the Fashion and Textile Museum stages the first-ever exhibition on the rebozo – the classic Mexican shawl made famous in 20th century culture by artist Frida Kahlo. Made in Mexico explores the key role textiles have played in promoting Mexican culture worldwide from the 17th century to the present day. Rebozos on display include major loans from: the Franz Mayer Museum, Mexico City; the Museum of Textiles, Oaxaca; the British Museum and rebozos from private collections that have never been shown in public before. Contemporary Mexican and UK artists, photographers, fashion and textile designers also present new work created in response to the rebozo and Mexican textiles – including Francisco Toledo, Graciela Iturbide, Carla Fernandez, Zandra Rhodes and Kaffe Fassett.

Amy Winehouse exhibition opens at the Jewish Museum

Amy Winehouse exhibition opens at the Jewish Museum | Herstory | Scoop.it

An exhibition about the life of Amy Winehouse has opened streets away from where she died aged 27.

 

The Jewish Museum in London's Camden Town has worked with her family to gather the star's clothes, record collection and dozens of photographs for the show.

 

The exhibits, put together with the help of her brother Alex, include fridge magnets, childhood books and her audition essay to the Sylvia Young stage school...

 

[Alex] said: "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 who, more than anything, just wanted to be true to her heritage."
