Godwin Champs Namuyimba: Inner Circle

Paris Exhibition full film

Galerie Marguo is pleased to present Inner CirclesUgandan artist Godwin Champs Namuyimba’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and in France, on view from 30 June - 27 August 2022. 


Namuyimba’s practice explores the ways that identity is constructed in a globalized and hyper-networked world, particularly within a postcolonial African context. In this new body of work, the artist appears to critically and equivocally grapple with the notion of Black Excellence – a conflictual term that on the one hand champions and celebrates the achievements and contributions of Black communities in a racialized society, while signifying, on the other, the disproportionate pressure Black individuals face to ‘work twice as hard to get half as far’.
