Stolen Women is a multidisciplinary community art project, comprising a series of narrative tapestry paintings, spoken word performance, and archive; inspired by the book of the same title by clinical psychologist Dr. Gail Elizabeth Wyatt. These paintings reclaim the strength and softness of Black women, Black femme bodied people, and effeminate presenting men through magical realism. The paintings are made through intimate interviews with participants, with a focus on American, Arab, and Francophone individuals of the Black diaspora. “Stolen Women”’ disrupts stereotypes of violence and misgynoir rooted in harmful archetypes (such as the Mammy), empowering us to rebuild a new vision of self tenderness.
