OMR was founded on 1983 by Patricia Ortiz Monasterio and Jaime Riestra, the actual owners and directors. The gallery is located in a spacious early-twentieth-century house in the heart of the Roma district in Mexico City. From its beginnings, OMR has seeked to promote the latest artistic tendencies as well as Mexican and international contemporary art.  It has a schedule of six to eight exhibitions per year in its Mexico City location and it has an unfailing presence at international fairs such as ARCO (Spain), Art Basel (Switzerland), Art Basel Miami (USA) and MACO (Mexico). OMR actually represents a broad spectrum of the most prominent painters, sculptors and photographers on both the Mexican and international art scene, without neglecting the emerging group of talented young creators.
