In early 2016, artist Gary Sweeney created a site-specific installation, A Manhattan Beach Memoir: 1945-2015 to commemorate his family’s home in Manhattan Beach, California. After selling the house and learning that the structure would be torn town, Sweeney covered the exterior of the house with over one hundred large-scale family photographs and occupied the house during its final month of February 2016.
For this exhibition, the artist resites the photographs and relics from the Sweeney home in the gallery and gives viewers a chance to connect to this project.
