ICARO - ΙΚΑΡΟΣ
The Factory of Rhodes 1928-1988
MUSEUM OF GREEK CULTURE
FROM 28/09/2017 - TO 19/11/2017
The exhibition presents the history and production of a company closely connected with Rhodes, that has been a key element of the island's economy for many decades.

The company Industria Ceramiche Artistiche Rodio Orientali (I.C.A.R.O.) was established in 1928, with the aim to reproduce the so-called “Lindian” Iznik ceramics, which were considered as of «Rhodian» or «Lindian» origin up to early 20th century because of their high concentration in Rhodes.

The company's production included a wide variety of items, such as decorative plates, jars, pitchers, dinnerware, tile compositions, animal-shaped ceramics and other items for everyday use, renowned for their beautiful motifs and bright colours. Among the most famous samples were those that copied the rich repertoire of Iznik's ceramics, including floral motifs with bouquets of tulips, hyacinths, roses, and carnations, as well as representations of ships of various types.

The exhibition owes a lot to the long and thorough research by Yannos Ioannidis. It shows his impressive collection of exquisite samples from all the periods of the factory accompanied by rich photographic and archival material.

The ‘ICARO - IKAROS’ exhibition is in dialogue with the exhibition 'The Magic of Iznik Ceramic', which takes place at the same time at the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art (22 Ag. Asomaton & 12 Dipilou St.).
