Joe Hale and Chris Cunningham work on the inaugural NEXT exhibition in 2011.

Joe has worked with MA Exhibition Design candidates to develop layouts for each of the exhibition spaces, creating plans to accommodate the installation needs of a wide variety of majors and media.

Instagram #corclife is a great place for install shots as they happen:
