Quantum field theory on curved space has long been studied for its interesting phenomenology, and more recently also as a means to obtain non-perturbative results in supersymmetric theories. In this talk I will describe the holographic dual for N=4 SYM coupled to massive N=2 flavors on spaces of constant curvature. I will discuss a topology-changing phase transition on S4 and confront holographic computations with exact field theory results obtained using supersymmetric localization.
