Huey Remixed is an ongoing project that collects and chronologically organises the appropriations of the iconic image of Huey P. Newton in a rattan chair.
This timeline is part of a larger research that addresses the role of ‘remix’ in art, design and visual culture. It looks at this remix not as a multiplicity of images, but as one image with multiple appearances that change over time.
The remix works like a living organism that goes through the stages of life; it is born, grows up, become mature, finds its place in life, fades away, dies and is reincarnated.
How has this image been appropriated, interpreted and given new meaning through time and space?
