This past summer, 2018, Pierre participated in a group show entitled Face 2.0 at the Ekaterinburg Museum of Fines Arts, in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Curated by Andrey Martinov, this group show featured contemporary interpretations of the portrait genre. Face 2.0 brought together 13 photographers from around the globe, working in a variety of techniques, who explore themes such as: identity, globalization, spirituality, consumerism, and gender issues. This exhibition was the second part of an exhibition called The Face: Portrait Evolution in Photography that was shown in museums and galleries in Russia, Italy, the USA, Germany, France, and Japan from 2010 to 2015.
