Siwa Art Project

Every two years, Environmental Quality International (EQI) invites an internationally renowned artist or team of artists to design an installation that showcases Siwa’s rich culture, history and natural environment, and engages Siwa’s schoolchildren in its assembly and exhibition.  So far, Siwa has hosted two installations, the first by Chinese artist Cai Guo Qiang entitled Man, Eagle and Eye in the Sky (2003), and the second by Russian-born artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov entitled The Ship of Siwa (2005).
