The Hammer Museum has confirmed additional participants and attendees for its 15th annual Gala in the Garden, the institution's flagship fundraiser held inside the museum's Westwood location and presented for a fifth time by Bottega Veneta.

Turning up to present awards to previously announced honorees Ava DuVernay and Hilton Als will be J.J. Abrams and author Maggie Nelson, respectively. Co-chairing the event will be Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Bottega's Tomas Maier and Jenni, Maggie and Saree Kayne.

Bucking tradition, the Hammer has also revealed the gala's featured performer, which this year will be cool-girl group Haim. In previous years, the museum left the musical portion a mystery until the night of. Less mysterious: Chef Suzanne Goin of Lucques will once again create the menu, with a tequila pairing by Tequila Casa Dragones Joven.
