This bag was issued containing water (as was the later Yoko Ono Water Event multiple also designed by Maciunas) and released as an object multiple / announcement for an exhibition by Maciunas’s New York AG Gallery (“AG” stood for “Art Gallery”) here exhibiting in the University premises.
This is an extremely rare item in VG condition although the plastic shows some brown staining in areas. The water however has long evaporated.
