Sandtown Murals

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy is honored to present the projectSandtown Murals led in partnership with CrossCurrents Foundation.

In November 2015, French artist Léa Eouzan exhibited her work Intersection at Cross MacKenzie Gallery as a part of FotoWeek DC. Following this project, she was invited by the Cultural Services to photograph murals of visual artists in Baltimore, Maryland’s Sandtown neighborhood. Using the photographic chamber as a medium, she created portraits of these muralists willing to highlight current Baltimore social issues through art.

This exceptional encounter resulted in the catalogue Frame On The Walls, Sandtown, gathering the photographs of Léa Eouzan as well as presentation and thoughts of muralists Bat Favitsou Boulandi, Gaia, Megan Lewis, Pablo Machioli, Gary A., Mullen, Justin Nether, Rameen, Michelle Santos, Ernest Shaw, Sorta and Adam Stab.

Concurrently, this project was filmed by French director Francescu Artily, who spent a few days with Léa Eouzan and the muralists in Baltimore. With his documentary Sandtown Project, he intended to provide the artists with a space to express their mind and lets the image speaks for itself in a creative perspective. The film was premiered and disclosed to the artists on April 24, 2016 at the Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center in Baltimore.Sandtown Project will be screened at the Embassy of France on May 4, 2016.
