Sometimes it’s hard to think of a time before the Kardashian empire took over our screens.

But a group of Brooklyn artists have collaborated with Instagram page @popculturediedin2009 to launch an exhibition of artworks dedicated to early ’2000s celebrity nostalgia.

Think portraits of the days when Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and old mate Lindsay Lohan were up to no good.

Dubbed Welcome to Nicole Richie’s Memorial Day BBQ, the ’00s-inspired showcase will feature headline moments that we can never forget. Even if we tried.

Remember when Naomi Campbell did community service in a Dolce & Gabbana gown? And not to mention Heidi and Spencer just being Heidi and Spencer.

The Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum will play host from July 29 to August 11.

Laura Collins, Derek Covington Smith, Tiny Stitchers, Lila Freeman and Randy G are just some of the contributing artists taking us back to the good old days. Now we’ve just got to work out our flights.
