To celebrate its anniversary, the Heong Gallery has created a video looking back at the five years since its transformation from an Edwardian stable block into a public gallery showing modern and contemporary art.

The video features archival footage, exhibition photographs, and interviews —including words from Alwyn Heong, Susan Lintott and Adam Caruso on creating a space where study, conversation and art naturally come together.
