Judging Shaw at the V&A, London
WhenFriday, December 7, 2018, 19:00 - 20:00
Join award winning author Fintan O’Toole for a look at how George Bernard Shaw generated—and used—his global fame.
George Bernard Shaw was the first person ever to win a Nobel Prize (for literature) and an Oscar (for the screenplay for Pygmalion, in 1938). As well as being a prolific writer and polymath, he was one of the first global celebrities who carefully created and managed his brand. Join award winning author and journalist Fintan O’Toole for a look at how Shaw became a master of self-invention, a nobody who captured the zeitgeist and one of the first private individuals to understand fully how to generate—and how to use—global fame.
The touring exhibition based on Judging Shaw by Fintan O'Toole and developed in collaboration with NUI Galway will be on display.
Tickets are available from the V&A's website.
