Design, animation and visual effects house Heckler has curated Iconicity at the Hollywood Hotel in Surry Hills for this year's Vivid Sydney festival.

Iconicity celebrates iconic people, art and music over three weeks.

Heckler’s show will feature everything from Queen Elizabeth II and Kate Moss to iconic Australian Mambo designs.

As the key curators of the project, Heckler have worked alongside Radio Velvet and Astral Projekts, to licence existing artworks and re-imagine them with animation which will be projected onto the facade of the Hollywood Hotel.

“The Hollywood is synonymous as a venue that champions the arts and important social issues," Heckler co-founder and executive producer Will Alexander says.

"We’ve had a strong connection to the Hollywood for many years and are delighted to support our local arts and creative community and reflect its status in the wider Sydney audience, using state of the art projections that celebrate iconic women, art and cultural icons."

50 Iconic Women - 24 to 30 May
50 Iconic Women kicks off the first week of Vivid at the Hollywood showcasing 50 images of influential women by renowned British photographer Terry O’Neill.

The exhibition arrives in Sydney after opening on International Women's Day in Melbourne.

It includes candid shots of Kate Moss, Brigitte Bardot, Amy Winehouse and Queen Elizabeth II.

Iconically Australian - 31 May to 6 June
The work of Reg Mombassa, known for his famous Mambo designs, features in the second week at the Hollywood called Iconically Australian.

Showcasing three existing artworks as well as work from his upcoming June exhibition on the rise of artificial intelligence and its likelihood of inseminating humans, the founding member of Mental As Anything will also perform at the Hollywood with his band Dog Trumpet on 31 May to open his show.

Cultural Icons - 7 to 15 June
The final week Cultural Icons features designs from Heckler’s executive creative director Luca Ionescu, who’s renowned for his logo and bespoke typography.
