No Tutorial, presented by the Miller Institute for Contemporary Art, reflects upon our current situation in the midst of a global pandemic, shines a critical light on societal shortcomings, and imagines new futures in a post-pandemic world. The exhibition, now on view at, presents final projects by graduating students at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art. Quickly adapting to a new remote reality without access to materials, equipment, and facilities, students in this exhibition demonstrate their ingenuity, creativity, and perseverance at a time when there simply is no tutorial.

Imagined and self-curated by students, No Tutorial brings together projects by 41 seniors, drawing distinct parallels between seemingly divergent bodies of work. Exhibition visitors can browse works by a series of categories covering themes, materials, and descriptions, or they can take a deep dive into each individual artist’s work. Taking advantage of this digital format, the exhibition imagines a new way for presenting art online where presentation is not limited by immovable gallery walls. No Tutorial is a testament to the talent, energy, humor, and originality of CMU School of Art’s graduating class at an incommensurable moment in our history.
