Galería de Arte Mexicano (GAM) was founded by Carolina and Inés Amor in 1940, in Mexico City and has been the first gallery of Mexican art. The gallery building was the first building in Mexico of Andrés Casillas de Alba.

The intention of the GAM is to establish national artists as well as the promotion of young artists. The collection of the GAM includes items of modern, Mexican and contemporary art. In 1940 the gallery had its first exhibition of Surrealist art organized by the Austrian Surrealist Wolfgang Paalen and the Peruvian poet César Moro. Altogether the GAM organized more than 900 exhibitions including well-known exhibitors like Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Miguel Covarrubias, Miguel Condé, Rufino Tamayo, Frida Kahlo, Wolfgang Paalen, Agustín Lazo, Federico Cantú, Jesús Guerrero Galván, Luis Ortiz Monasterio, Emilio Rosenblueth and others.
