Named for the controversial goal that a Russian linesman awarded England in the 1966 World Cup final, artist Mark Wallinger has curated an exhibition that deals with the murky subject of boundaries and thresholds. A polymath and artistic omnivore, Wallinger should make a good curator, and his touring show includes early Roman busts, Ronald Searle drawings, Victorian stereoscopic photographs, 18th-century trompe l’oeil paintings and artists as diverse as Vija Celmins, Thomas Demand, Albrecht Dürer and Fred Sandback.

Exhibition View at Leeds Art Gallery (16 May – 28 June)
