Hours for MICA’s galleries, which are free and open to the public, are Mondays–Saturdays, 10 AM–5 PM, and Sundays, noon–5 PM. They are closed on major holidays.

The exhibition will showcase more than 35 images made by DeLuise with an 8x10 large format camera while in India, Nepal, Italy and Bhutan.From the start, travel has been integral to DeLuise’s creative process. Throughout her career, DeLuise has traveled to India and Nepal on a Guggenheim Fellowship, to Italy both to study and teach, and to Bhutan on a recent sabbatical. Although the destinations have varied, DeLuise has been moving in the same direction, desiring to roam toward the unknown and bowing to her subject through the lens of her camera.

DeLuise has been teaching at MICA since 1998, previously teaching at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn; the University of Georgia Studies Abroad in Cortona, Italy; and Green Mountain College in Vermont. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York, Galerie Utermann in Germany, Michael Shapiro Gallery in San Francisco, and Verso Gallery in Tokyo. Her work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, among others.
