ArtWorthy: ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ – Nola Darling’s, Artistic Expressions

ART_library deco:

Spike Lee released his latest body of work, a reboot of his 1986 film, ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ on Thanksgiving Day. There are numerous articles and reviews on the net about Nola Darling and her journey as a Black woman, her right to be free, and make her own decisions on her own terms and not give a care about what anyone says – FREEDOM.

Throughout our research we wanted to find out the inspiration behind the artwork for the film. Nola Darling is a visual artist and decides to create a series of street posters about a violent encounter that she had with a harasser [(“My Black Name Isn’t Baby Girl”)] – the body of work pays homage to “Stop Telling Women to Smile” series by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, the show’s art consultant.

Check out “She’s Gotta Have It” on Netflix today!
