The stage adaptation of ‘The Bluest Eye,’ from acclaimed author Toni Morrison’s debut novel of the same title, will be live on stage at the Calderwood Pavilion from Jan. 28 through March 13. 

The Huntington Theatre Company production comes together through the collaborative vision of playwright Lydia R. Diamond and director Awoye Timpo and of course birthed from the classic storytelling found in the pages of Morrison’s masterpiece. The adaptation is centered on the story of “how we receive images of beauty and how we metabolize messages of images of beauty,” Diamond said in Huntington Theatre’s Meet the Artists video.

Life Altering: Selections from a Kansas City Collection

Dates: January 18 to March 1, 2022.

Location: BU Art Galleries (Faye G., Jo, and James Stone Gallery 855 Commonwealth Avenue)

Featuring work by Jeffrey Gibson (Chocktaw/Cherokee) and Wendy Red Star (Apsáalooke/Crow) along with nearly a dozen other contemporary artistsCreated over the past 12 years, the works in this exhibit explore a rich array of meaning relevant to our present time.

Artists investigate the global inequity of wealth and power, social justice, race, slavery, colonialism, the experience of exile and the diaspora, identity, the important role of the body, LGBTQ+ issues, popular culture, the precarious balance between progress and technology, climate change, and the environment. Some artists draw from the traditions of their cultural heritage—African, American, Caribbean, Indian, Iranian, Iraqi, and Native American. These artists celebrate their heritage by reclaiming ownership of, and pride in, their cultural origins. Above all, the artists here express hope, courage, resilience, and determination in the service of a better future.

Free and open to the public.
