Professor Vin Grabill's early video works are included in A Feast of Astonishments: Charlotte Moorman and the Avant-Garde, 1960s-1980s. This is the first major retrospective surveying performance artist Charlotte Moorman's work and influence, and the exhibition is presented by the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art, Evanston, Illinois, January 16 - July 17, 2016.

Two of the three videos included in the exhibition were recorded by Professor Grabill at the Sky Art Conference/ Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria, in 1982 documenting Charlotte's performances. Here are links:
