Julian Flavin (b. 1990, Kingston, ON) is a Canadian artist and educator based in Chicago, Illinois. His projects spanning music, documentary filmmaking, installation, and writing have been featured at SXSW, Osheaga Music Festival, The Tinguely Museum, Chicago Artists Coalition, The University of Chicago’s Smart Museum of Art, and NYU’s Gallatin Galleries among others. Films and installations featuring his post-production sound work have screened at the Viennale, DOK Leipzig, RIDM, Gallery 400, Union Docs, Visions du Réel, and Art of The Real among others. He teaches at Northwestern University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

A US military cover band returns from deployment in Kuwait, a 7 Eleven blares classical music from its awnings to discourage the homeless from loitering, a choir sings at the bedsides of the dying, and teenagers appropriate the filmmaker's own music to soundtrack "Call Of Duty" first-person-shooter gameplay on Youtube. "In The Sweet Arms” asks how our relationship to music shapes our politics, our deepest-held aspirations, and our language for understanding our position in the world.
