Carter Shocket (he/him) is a trans and queer interdisciplinary artist from North Carolina living and working in Brooklyn, New York. His work includes  public installation, collaborative work, weaving, tapestry, and other process based textile art. 


My work explores the networks of care that trans and queer people make today and have made throughout time. I am researching, mapping, and archiving how we can take care of each other in ways outside of western cis culture. Along with mapmaking, I believe in myth-making, and I create works that capture the trans supernatural: the moments beyond reality that we experience. Through establishing those otherworldly moments into art, and through mapping our connections of care, I connect myself to my community, and my community to our history and future.
