STAMFORD,Conn. -- Franklin Street Works, a nonprofit contemporary art space in Stamford, is holding a free public reception for its new exhibit, "Neuromast: Certain Uncertainty and Contemporary Art."

The opening starts at 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, at the gallery, located at 41 Franklin St in Stamford.

The group exhibition explores “emergence,” the theory that says unforeseeable results happen when a system reaches a certain level of complexity.

The show’s title is inspired by a specific emergent phenomenon, “neuromast,” the sensory organ that allows fish to effectively behave in unison against the threat of predators.

Neuromast features sculpture, videos, text-based works, photographs and more by contemporary artists, writers and theorists interested in theories of emergence.

The exhibition was curated by Taliesin Gilkes-Bower and Terri C. Smith and is on view through Feb. 23. For more details about the show, visit the website or call 203-595-5211.
