The Royal Irish Academy, in partnership with NUI Galway and supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, has created a pop-up exhibition based on the book Judging Shaw (Royal Irish Academy) by Fintan O’Toole.


George Bernard Shaw was the first person ever to win a Nobel Prize and an Oscar. With his passionate interest in social justice and poverty, in human rights, in public discourse and in entertainment, he was a man with much to say about our times. He was 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.
