About the show

Ambitions and visions collide in this new satirical comedy about identity, harassment, and narcissism in the age of social media, set in the visual arts world. More…

Calvin is a photographer and self-proclaimed provocateur in desperate need of an idea for his next installation. Grace, his girlfriend and publicist, and Fyn, his best friend and art dealer, are turning up the heat as the deadline approaches. Meanwhile, two eponymous Art Handlers begin to complicate the situation when they become the target of Grace’s unwanted attention. Mrs. Marbleblatt, a widowed patron of the arts, further queers the equation when she takes a prurient interest in Calvin’s work.

'Dick Pix' is running in rotating repertory with 'Perfect Teeth.'

Confusing, Disappointing, Edgy, Unamusing, Disjointed

See it if I liked the irony of a woman using typically male pickup lines to a guy.
