The KHOJ International Artists’ Association
is the wonderfully inventive group of artists who support a variety of imaginative projects all over the city. The book "takes a consolidated view of contemporary art practice in India during a particularly dynamic decade. This unique compendium contains five lead essays by eminent art critics and thinkers of our time, and interviews of 101 Indian artists by artists.

Lavishly illustrated with over a 1000 coloured images of art works, this 680-page book covers not only some of India’s foremost contemporary artists, but also younger artists across the country who may well be the future vanguard. It offers the reader, researcher, student, collector and art aficionado a rich store of material ‘in the artist’s own words’ from which to draw their own inspiration and conclusions.
