The Heong Gallery at Downing College opened in February 2016 as a new gallery for exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. When the Heavens Meet the Earth is the fourth exhibition and follows Generation Painting 1955–65: British Art from the Collection of Sir Alan Bowness (February–May 2016), Ai Weiwei: Cubes and Trees (June–October 2016) and Portraits of Place: Works from Kettle’s Yard & Richard Long (November 2016-January 2017).

The Gallery was designed by Caruso St John Architects (winners of RIBA Stirling Prize 2016) and so named in gratitude for the generous benefaction of Alwyn Heong.
