De Niro Is An Icon: An Exhibit & Immersive Experience

Don’t miss out on this limited run experience celebrating 80 years of Robert De Niro! On view June 6-16th.

De Niro, New York is a first-of-its-kind short, immersive film produced by Little Cinema and showcased within the Hexadome, a cutting-edge structure and format crafted by Berlin's Institute for Sound and Music. This premier installation is supported by ZKM Hertzlabor in Karlsruhe, Germany and powered by Panasonic Solid Shine ™ Laser Projection technology boasting six screens and 52 channels of sound, seamlessly merging pop culture with high art. The film weaves together De Niro's iconic characters from various films, forging new connections and dialogues.

Surrounding the Hexadome is De Niro Is An Icon, an exhibition celebrating the career of Robert De Niro, highlighting themes and collaborative relationships that span decades. The collection on display includes rare images, annotated scripts, costumes, storyboards, research materials, and more. Over 300 items have been sourced, including many materials from Robert De Niro’s personal archive housed at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas. Media support for the exhibit is provided by Air Mail, with exhibition design by Pentagram.
