Dick Pix is a satirical comedy about artistic integrity, gender identity, sexual harassment, and narcissism in the age of social media. Calvin Lively is a photographer and self-proclaimed provocateur in desperate need of an idea for his next installation. Grace, his girlfriend and publicist, and Fin, his best friend and art dealer, are turning up the heat as the deadline approaches. Meanwhile, two eponymous Art Handlers complicate the situation when they become the target of Graceís unwanted attention. Mrs. Marbleblatt, a widowed patron of the arts, further queers the equation when she takes a prurient interest in Calvinís work. As the title suggests, Calvinís installation involves large-scale photographic prints of his own penis selfies (tastefully framed). Though the show is a financial success, Calvin is unprepared for the sudden and unorthodox ways in which both Grace and Finís own internet stars rise as a result leaving Calvin feeling like an anachronism in a world where heís used to being at the center. With the help of Mrs. Marbleblatt, Calvin has one last big idea that will cap off his body of work with a bang.
