Femme Fatale is a pop-up that is more than just a store or collection of retailers. It is a gathering space, gallery, showcase, and promoter of the arts. It's been a great addition to Atlas District and a refreshing and uplifting new presence on H.
Today photographer Marie Emerson opens "After Hours," an exhibition running through the weekend. The opening is tonight, June 29, from 7 PM - 10 PM. Then the show runs Friday 4 PM - 10 PM, Saturday 1 PM - 10 PM, and Sunday 11 AM - 6 PM.
From the organizers:
“After Hours” is a photography exhibition, saluting the lives we lead after our 9-5 jobs conclude. The exhibition is composed of portraits of ten local Washington, D.C., women representing six different ethnicities. It showcases the type of photographic work Emerson has conceptualized since first embarking on a photography career, but never conjured up the nerve to do so.
In the exhibition, Emerson explores the duality of what is asked of us during working hours and full autonomy over our lives between the hours of 5:01 PM and 8:59 AM. “After Hours” represents: hours are all we have, and whether or not it is between 9AM to 5PM, or from 5:01PM to 8:59AM, we are the only ones who choose the lives we wish to lead.
Femme Fatale is located at 1371 H Street NE.
