Oficina para Proyectos de Arte (OPA) is an independent, nonprofit art space in Guadalajara, Mexico, founded by artists Jose Dávila, Gonzalo Lebrija, and Fernando Palomar. Located in the city center, on the twenty-third floor of a 1963 office building known as Condominio Guadalajara, it comprises almost 600 square meters of exhibition space, including a workshop and a terrace with an amazing view of the city.

The goal of OPA is to have a flexible and open space where the local community can experience, debate, and confront the ideas circulating in the international contemporary art scene. Its annual program includes four to five exhibitions, as well as lectures, conferences, workshops, and video screenings.

Since its start, OPA has invited international and Mexican artists to conceive works of art specifically for its unique space. OPA seeks to offer artists a special experience with the possibility of working and producing in a city with a long history of artisan work and small workshops that facilitate the translation and production of any idea.
