Despite the success of many large art festivals, some artists and curators dismiss them as "spectacles" that drain funding from public galleries and museums. Others appreciate the large public audiences such festivals provide - especially in an era when many institutions focus on international "art stars" rather than local talents.

Moderator: Leah Sandals, Canadian Art Online Editor

Panelists: Gwen MacGregor, Artist and University of Toronto Geography PhD Student, Janine Marchessault, Curator and York University Canada Research Chair and Murray Whyte, Toronto Star Art Critic
