Originally from Belgium, Nicole Klagsbrun graduated from La Cambre School of Architecture and Visual Arts (ENSAAV), Brussels, Belgium in 1979. She arrived in New York in 1980 and joined Tony Shafrazi Gallery and in 1981 became the Director of Olsen Gallery in Greenwich Village.
In 1984 she opened Cable Gallery in partnership with Clarissa Dalrymple, renowned for introducing young artists from varying backgrounds of nationality and discipline, establishing the work of such artists as Ashley Bickerton, Christopher Wool, Barbara Ess, Haim Steinbach and Dan Graham.
In 1989 she opened Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery at 59 Greene Street in Soho. The program since then, has continued to represent American and International artists who are pushing the forefront of contemporary art practices in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, video, photography, installation, and mixed media assemblage. Her artists grappled with concepts of society, knowledge, nature, and humor located in current art historical discourses. The gallery has also organized exhibitions of older under recognized talents whose practices had not been featured in the New York art world, such a Jay Defeo and Wallace Berman.
In 2013 she closed her gallery but has remained active as the representative of the Cameron Parsons Estate and has produced off-site exhibitions for Brie Ruais (2014), Lee Quinones (2016) and Jonathan Silver (2017).
