Pioneers in the promotion of contemporary art in Mexico, OMR established itself as one of the first galleries in the country. OMR was founded in 1983 and through over 400 exhibitions and 18 years of participation in art fairs, has developed an identity as a cutting-edge contemporary art space for the fostering of new artistic voices throughout Latin America and globally. Over the past three decades, OMR has had the honour of working with and developing the careers of many of the most talented emerging and established artists in contemporary Mexican art. Currently in an exciting, generational- shifting moment, OMR is poised for the next chapter at the frontier of art-making, with new curatorial directorship, a new gallery space, the development of a residency program, and the establishment of a foundation to reinvest in public art and local communities. These programs mark a shift toward art with broader impact and social consciousness; spearheaded by artists whose practices blur the boundaries between disciplines and who invite the viewer to participate in the evolution of culture.
