Nicole Ritchie, Paris Hilton, bejeweled tracksuits, Britney Spears’ meltdown… feeling nostalgic for the early 2000s yet? If so, you might want to attend the THNK1994 Museum’s “Nicole Richie’s 2007 Memorial Day BBQ” exhibition. With “Pop Culture Died In 2009,” a group that commemorates the early 2000s, the museum presents an inspired collection of memorabilia and imagery from and inspired by the first decade of the 21st century, all seen through the lens of—you guessed it—”Nicole Richie’s 2007 Memorial Day Barbecue.”

It all started Friday night at the museum’s flashy opening gala inviting people to wear their “finest BBQ attire,” and will be on display until September 10, 2017 at the Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum in Brooklyn, which has landed in a new storefront following its first hidden, apartment exhibition in 2015 dedicated to the figure skaters.

The exhibit will present a historically-minded, curated collection of some of the 2000’s most iconic moments. Celebrities featured will include Tyra Banks, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Mischa Barton, and many more.

In the summer of 2007, Nicole Richie actually did throw a barbecue. The invitations were leaked, and at the end, Mischa Barton was hospitalized. This exhibition will imagine what it might’ve been like if everyone had access to the leaked invitation. Now you too can witness the trashiest, most disastrous and incriminating relics of that remarkable era.

It will capture split-second, yet famous moments such as Britney, Paris, and Lindsay in a car and actress Winona Ryder in court. The exhibit will also include objects like a hand-knit alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet, an “IRL .gif of Janet Jackson,” and in the spirit of the event it’s honoring, a barbecue table with mini food.

The exhibit features work by Laura Collins, Derek Covington Smith, Tiny Stitchers, Lila Freeman, and Randy G, Natassha Kwbwill, along with many others. All work will be inspired by the glossy legends of the early 2000s.

Somewhat in line with this theme, last year, THNK 1994 held a Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen exhibit. But this time, get your bedazzler out, put some Britney on, and head over to Brooklyn to honor this important period in American history!

THNK1994 is open everyday from 12pm-7pm at 1436 Atlantic Avenue.
