KHOJ Delhi acquired a building in 2002, which has allowed it to provide high quality arts programming with local and international, emerging and established artists.

The KHOJ Studio building came into being in the anomaly of the urban/rural that is Khirkee village, anchoring an erstwhile tentative, fluid entity into brick and mortar. KHOJ sits on the edge of Khirkee Gaon an Urban village very close to Malviya Nagar situated in the south of Delhi, established in the 13th Century and known for its famous and stunningly beautiful Khirkee Masjid (mosque) built in 1380 AD.

About 600 years ago, this area began to take shape as a residential block as the Rajputs, (Sainis), Chauhans and Muslims began to settle in descendants of these early communities still inform the entrenched power structures in the village. The resident community is a disparate one: with low-level income groups on the one hand and upper-middle class (largely artists) on the other. There is a drama school, a professional photography studio, and professionals such as an architect and filmmakers residence in the neighborhood of KHOJ.

The KHOJ Studios host visiting curators and arts professionals from India and overseas and facilitates their access to Indian artists and arts practice. KHOJ Studios is fast becoming one of the first places people seek out to see exciting contemporary art, to meet local artists, and to measure the creative pulse of the city.

The studios double as a gallery and a viewing space for film screenings, artists presentations etc. The office supports a library of artists catalogues, books and CD's with a special focus on artists from India, South Asia (Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh) and Asia.
