Division of labor

I support a division in a large corporation. My supervisor seems to have a long-standing issue with someone in management. How to proceed?

My supervisor seems to have issues with this manager; she always demands the maximum delivery in the minimum amount of time. This leads to pressure for my supervisor (Y), and ultimately to me, as there are multiple projects going on at the same time. X always expects us to work first and solely for her. Ultimately, we are expected to develop our own solution.
We are supposed to be evaluated in the next couple of months. In the meantime, I would like to become better at "managing up" and resolving situations like these. How do I make my needs clear without getting too involved?
