OMR is one of the most influential contemporary art galleries in Latin America. Founded in Mexico City in 1983 by Patricia Ortiz Monasterio and Jaime Riestra, OMR has been a major influence on the arts in Mexico, showing avant-garde artists that have now become some of the protagonists of the Mexican contemporary art scene, including Julieta Aranda, Gabriel Rico and Jose Dávila, as well as international figures such as Ryan Brown, Daniel Silver, Matti Braun and Troika.Gathering materials from the OMR archive and being its first tribute, this beautifully designed publication traces the gallery’s history, including a visual timeline, testimonials, biographical notes and texts by curator and art critic Osvaldo Sánchez, art historian and academic Teresa Eckmann, art historian and curator Daniel Garza Usabiaga, artist and curator Guillermo Santamarina, art historian and curator Victor Palacios, and architect Mateo Riestra.
