Starting on Sept. 21 at The Guggenheim presents Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective. This is a short program of film and video works carefully assembled by the artist that includes Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999), Mark Leckey's acclaimed short film portraying British nightlife from fragments of found video footage; Pierre Huyghe's Blanche-Neige Lucie (1997), a short film capturing the struggle of Lucie Dolene, who sued Disney to regain possession of the copyright to her own voice in the French dubbed version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; as well as Blind Kind (1964), Johan van der Keuken's documentary about a school for blind children in Amsterdam.

Also starting on Sept. 21 at The China Institute Gallery is New “China”: Porcelain Art From Jingdezhen, 1912-1912.

On Saturday, Sept. 22, a gay/lesbian art gallery tour will be offered by New York Gallery Tours in Chelsea at 1pm.

Questions? 877-9GO-HUNT, but please do not contact the museum directly.

On Sept. 22&23, bring the kids out to The Queens County Farm Museum for the 30th Annual Queens County Fair. There will be blue ribbon competitions in produce, livestock, arts and crafts, and more. Wander through the Amazing Maize Maze, enjoy pie-eating and corn-husking contests, pig-racing, hayrides, carnival rides, and a midway.

Also on Saturday and Sunday is the FDR POW WOW at FDR State Park in Westchester.
