As the first stop on its UK tour, Visible Girls Revisited couldn’t have asked for a warmer welcome!

2017’s City of Culture was delightfully non-conformist, incredibly friendly, utterly engaged and thoroughly excited by the images. The show was brilliantly received by a rich and diverse audience of women and men of all generations. Thank you Hull!

Identity of new Visible Girl discovered in Hull

Her name is Liz Wilson (pictured left) and she was photographed with her friend Jan by Anita at the Blitz Club in 1980. And until now she had been one of the ‘unfound girls’ in the exhibition.

Liz explains the discovery story...

‘My husband Keith was a volunteer for Hull UK City of Culture and went to a volunteers’ party the evening the show opened. Martin Green, (the CEO & Director of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 who had opened the Visible Girls Revisited show) was there talking about it, so Keith came home, we Googled it and he was like – ‘Liz!! It’s’ you!’

Keith was also retiring from his career that day. So the next morning we went along and had a look at the pictures. It was really bizarre seeing myself up there on the wall!’

Liz then went on to email Anita:
