Galería OMR is a contemporary art gallery located in Mexico City.

History[edit]

Galería OMR was founded in 1983 by its principals Patricia Ortiz Monasterio and Jaime Riestra[1] The gallery is located in the Roma district which is now recognized as the leading art scene area in Mexico City[2] The Observer wrote in August 2019 that OMR is "one of the city’s longest-running and largest blue-chip galleries" and noted that the majority of their buyers are "foreign collectors"[3]

The gallery represents emerging and established contemporary artists, and it is the exclusive representative of the estates of Adolfo Riestra and Luis Ortiz Monasterio,[4] and Alberto Gironella.[5] Since its beginning, Galería OMR has been a major influence on the arts in Mexico, showing avant-garde artists that have now become some of the referential points of the Mexican art scene[citation needed].

Among the fairs in which the gallery participates are Freize Los Angeles[6] Zona MACO (Mexico)[7] Art Basel (Switzerland), Art Brussels (Belgium) and Art Basel Miami (USA). In 2009, OMR opened a project space for young artists in an annex called 'el52'[8]
