DJORDJE IVAČKOVIĆ
WORDS ARE VERY UNNECESSARY

JOYCE is pleased to present the works of acclaimed abstract painter Djordje Ivačković. In partnership with Double Q Gallery, this exhibition marks his first in Asia. The showcase is dedicated to Ivačković’s mature artwork styles from the 1980s, which explore a poetic approach to abstraction through layers of colour, dramatic composition, and imagination.

Ten rare oil on canvas paintings will be displayed at JOYCE New World Tower, Central, between October 21 and November 18, 2021. Celebrating the opening of the exhibition, a conversation with special guest, the prominent contemporary artist, curator art expert Dr Zoran Poposki, will be held on October 21.

Djordje Ivačković (1930 – 2012) was born in Yugoslavia and led a creative life that spanned more than just art – he studied architecture and was an avant-garde jazz musician before he began painting in the mid-1950s. It is during this time that Ivačković set out for Italy, then Germany, before finally settling in Paris in 1961. Jazz music informed his artistic expression, which developed a recognisable visual voice through bold and determined brushstrokes and an intently impersonal aspect that informed a purified notion of beauty. Ivačković’s works are collected by prominent institutions and recognised by famous art critics around the world.

A partnership born through a mutual appreciation for artistic expression, both JOYCE and Hong Kong-based Double Q Gallery draw upon themes of creativity, art and fashion to inspire and inform their communities.
