[BKARTS] new web site

Ufemisms.com is Norman Shapiro's book art site, showcasing limited editions or his work: "books in print" (recent and current works); "vintage books" (works dating from the 1980s and 1990s); and "copier art" (one-of-a-kind books he calls "waste-not-want-not books").  Also featured are two newly-created collaborative book art works made with his friend and poet Guy Kettelhack.

Norman Shapiro’s work grapples with many issues in the making of book art, not only as a craft, but as an artist's polemic. His concerns address representations of the erotic, the sexualization of self-identity and one's sexual aspirations, sexuality and its various stereotyping. His art grapples with common phobias, bigotries (racist, homophobic, mysogynist, etc.) and explores diverse motifs about sexual preferences.
Norman Shapiro's works are in the following archival collections: The Museum of Modern Art Library, NYC, NY; The New York Public Library at 42nd Street NYC NY; Special Collections, Albertsons Library, Boise State University, Boise, Idaho; Library of the Kinsey Institute, Bloomington, Indiana; Fine Arts Library, Indiana State University, Bloomington, Indiana; Islip Art Museum, Irish Lane, Islip, New York; Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation, NYC 10012; The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Trans-gender Community Center Archives, NYC, NY.
