In 1945, while artist Gary Sweeney’s father Mike was returning from Guam after World War II, his mother Anita bought a small house at 320 35th St. in Manhattan Beach, California. It was their family home for 70 years. Sweeney sold the house in July 2015, with the understanding that the new owner planned to demolish the house and put a new development in its place. A Manhattan Beach Memoir, is a relocation of artist Sweeney’s 2016 site-specific installation, A Manhattan Beach Memoir: 1945-2015. As a tribute to his family, hometown, and father’s photography, Sweeney covered the exterior of the house with over 100 large-scale family photographs and occupied the house during its final month, February 2016.

Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through September 2.
