Join the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program for No Algorithm Night, a one-night event happening in conjunction with the exhibition Break Every Rule.

Presenters will screen their favorite videos from the far reaches of the internet. Music videos, short films, cultural critique, ASMR, foil polishing, playthroughs, how–tos, cats, lost movie trailers, and other YouTube esoterica.

No Algorithm Night leans on an irreverent, convivial cliché lovingly lifted from pop lyrics as inspiration. Participants have adopted this playfully bad attitude to temporarily free themselves from entrenched cultural and academic touchstones, to forgo references to art–world honorifics and standard–bearers, to find a weak spot in the institutional walls and push through. Break Every Rule gives artists a moment to be willfully rebellious, to abandon formality; it’s a small but unapologetic celebration of rioters, dissenters, and renegades everywhere.
