Dr Who is Mark Wallinger then? His name seems to ring a bell! Okay we are slightly tongue in cheek, but not everyone follows the Turner Prize, or has even read about the great White Horse that has been commissioned to rival Anthony Gormley’s Angel of the North. Mark Wallinger is the artist who wears a bear suit, and won last year’s Turner Prize. Is it all coming back to you now? Well his latest exhibition is coming straight from The Hayward in Londinium to Leeds in a glittering Tardis…

The Russian Linesman takes its title from the famous – or infamous – sporting moment when the linesman awarded the decisive goal to England in the 1966 World Cup Final between England and West-Germany. His controversial ruling exemplifies a central concept of this project – disputed boundaries. We recommend that you don’t wait until the final whistle to see this exhibition, before it is exterminated.
